Abstract

Currently a great number of organizations are acquiring products and services from suppliers and developing less and less of these products in-house. The CMMI-ACQ and the ISO/IEC 12207:2008 are process reference model that addressing issue related to software acquisition. With the aim of to offer information on how the practices described in these two models are related, and considering that the comparison is one specific strategy for the harmonization of models, we have carried out a comparison of these two reference models. We have taken into account the latest versions of the models. Furthermore, to carry out this comparison in a way systematic, we defined a process for this purpose. This work intends to support organizations which are interested in introducing or improving their practices for acquisition of products and services using these models.
